Maya Hates Me: The View Cube
Gather round, children! I thought I’d start this blog off with the solution to a pretty common, but pretty annoying problem many of you might have encountered.
PROBLEM: Where the hell is that navigation thingy in the corner?
The little navigation thingy in the corner of the screen is called the “viewcube”. In case you’ve never used it, you can click on the six faces and eight corners of the cube to see your project from different preset angles. I don’t use it much, but some people do.
Occasionally, the view cube will up and disappear, for no particular reason.
SOLUTION: To get the view cube back, you can go to the Preferences menu under ViewCube in 2009 and 2008. Just click the box marked “show the ViewCube”.
In Maya 8.5, this widget is known as the “view compass” and can be found under “view – camera settings – view compass” in the panel menu. ( No, not the main menu bar, the one inside each view panel. )
I’ll post pictures as soon as I figure out how to do it with wordpress. Oh, and if anyone wants a tutorial or help on anything, just let me know, and I’ll make a post about it if I can.
More to come!
